To All those interstered:
I am considering starting a large server. This server will only run the large,warlike maps. Basically,if you like playing market garden with fifty people,and still haveing tons of room to play, this is the server for you! The server will have a password that will be given out on the various wolf community forums. This way,anyone with a brain who can go to a site can get in and lamers who just install the game and log on to tk can't. For a while i will have to limit to tewenty players untill i able to afford a better connection. At the time i have some really fast cable(runs pretty faster then the dsl around here),so i would need to wait and test before booting up to fifty people.
Sever Map Pack(May Change): Mp_MarketGarden Mp_Vermok Mp_SeekersDream Mp_Tank Mp_Airstrip2 Mp_schwelzble Mp_Tram mtn_assault Mp_wizernes Mp_Launch
Mods: Shrub Mod(Set to report back stats.among other things,no weapons disallowed though). Stupid Solider Mod(Any solider who spawns with a sten/thompson/mp40 is returned next spawn with a extra heavy venom. Server side.) Ikkyo's Wolf Mod(Set to Disallow SCOUTS,Possibly)
Gametime(Per a map): 30 minutes
Disallowed: Gernade Scripts. Services: Will host new maps for mappers needing to display thier work. Pure server,punkbuster enabled.
Would anyone play?
You realize that cable traditionally only runs 128 up? This would limit a server to 4 players. Upload is key to a server, not download.

Damn, Gnaget, always beating me to the tech issue, Oh well, thx.
Gnaget is right, go find a bandwidth test and test your upload speed. The test usually gives the result in Kilo BITS up... Example: 128 Kbps up= 128000 bps divide that by 8 to get Bytes... 16000.. That is your upload speed.. a normal maxrate for each player is 5000 - 8000... so , u can get 3, maybe 4 players in.... So for 50 players at maxrate of 8000, you would need a 3.2Mbps upload speed... That's faster than T1 T1 gives 1.55Mbps and that would handle 24 players
ok, that is a LOT more detailed than I planned to get, but to help out more, go to dslreports.com click on DSLR tools, then speed tests. Your upload will be given in kilobits per second
DUDE! I have 284 up. Suprising.
True,but if all works out well,i may be able to get hosting on my ferind's two t1 lines(Since hes the company president :) ) . :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:
Well, if the server becomes popular it would take virtually all his bandwidth. He probably won't appreciate that for long... :uhoh:
True,but he's only running a irc network for gamers,and so has had me doing a game website for 'em. Plus,he has a sof2 server,and a dod server soon allready,and we've had no objection to possibly useing the lines for one more.
I hate the be considered the negitive nancy, but if he is running an IRC server, a web server, and 2 game servers, 2 T1's won't hold much more

Yea, thats alot of BW already, but I guess he knows what he's doing...
